A businessman was climbing the steep stairway to Atago Jinja

Shot at Atago Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Atago, Tokyo.

Walking through Torii which built by the roadside, a steep stairway appeared in front of me. It was the approach to Atago Jinja, which was built in 1603. The Shinto shrine is enshrined on the top of the small natural mountain. Interestingly, this small mountain is the highest mountain in the center of Tokyo although there are some buildings taller than this mountain around here.

I came here early in the morning. The stairway was deserted. I could see only one businessman climbing the stairway. He seemed to pray here before going to work. This stairway is called Shusse No Ishidan. The meaning is the stairway of the promotion. In the old days, a samurai climbed this stairway on horseback in front of the shogun's face. Afterward, he was promoted. The name is derived from the event.
